Craig Mathison, age 45, of La Crosse, WI, passed away peacefully in his home on Friday March 26th, 2021. He was born on Friday, August 15th, 1975 to Gary and Wanda (Ellefson) Mathison in La Crosse. Craig graduated from Westby High School in 1994. Everyone who knew him could attest to his huge heart and impeccable sense of humor.
Craig found himself in many different careers, never picking one to settle down with. He lived his life driven by love and playful curiosity. He always liked to get the most out of every moment, pausing just long enough to smell the flowers as he raced from one bright cluster to the next. Craig embodied classic Mathison traits with his gregarious personality and irresistibly contagious smile. Making the people around him laugh came as easily as breathing did. If Craig loved you, he made sure you knew it and felt it and would never forget it.
Craig is survived by his children Madeleine Rose McKinney (25) and Delilah Jean Vance (21). He is also survived by his parents, Gary (Barb) Mathison and Wanda (Dennis) Grubbs, his brothers Scott and Eric, and his sisters, Nichole and Arianna.
